Build a new wing in the archive if you have to, but these shows are driving me NUTS with how great they are! How many of these shows do you have Rick? Are these more difficult to transfer then actual film?
I've looked up Dr. Herald on the internet too, and tragically, he's no longer with us. Darn :(

I'm guessing you're reviewing these from the ftp.archive.org copy, Spuzz? If not, I'm genuinely confused. :)

Yesiree, I am :)

Gotta get prelingers some how.. Like I said, A whole wack of files are down, which leads me to believe that a server might be down?? I know you've given me an explanation already, but I'm thinking otherwise ;)

Actually, we have the final list of to-be-restored Prelinger movies, so I'm sure nobody will mind me posting that list here.

They're down because a server went down in mid-2003 and we had trouble restoring them properly, which is why we're having to go back to the CD-ROM backups. We'll re-digitize them if we're not happy the current copy we have is good enough, also.

[There are also a few movies that only have MPEG1s available right now, and we're working to get the MPEG2s of those back too.]

As you spotted, Spuzz, most of the missing movies are alphabetically close together, because it was one particular drive that failed. Because it happened so long ago, we need to go back to CD-ROM for these movies.

Forum: prelinger Subject: Restoration update (was Re: Please! More)

So, good news - I finished looking through the CD-ROM backups, and found just about all the missing Science In Action, San Francisco-related movies, and even the missing Ivan Besse film. One of two stragglers, but in general, no major issues.

These'll need to be copied back up to the server one by one and re-derived (time-consuming!), but will be back online 'soon'.
